When police are called to a scene where people are fighting, they must then determine what occurred, who started it and who, if anyone, should be charged with a crime.
Many times people are arrested when they were acting in self-defense, or were the victims of the assault. There are many errors police can make at the time of arrest, which Attorney Brown is skilled at identifying, and then using the discovered error to prevent a conviction for an offense that can have unforeseen consequences.
